Overview

The zoo is a very busy place! From early in the morning until evening comes, a lot goes on to keep the animals safe and comfortable. There are kitchens where people prepare the special diets the animals need. And there are nurseries where zoo keepers raise baby animals until they are big enough to go to their exhibit areas. Here is a lively, behind-the-scenes look at just what it takes to keep a zoo running!

This book is perfect to read to a class that is about to take a field trip to the zoo. This is basically an informative book about what goes on at the zoo all day and all night. It talks about what the workers must do, and what the animals do. It talks about how their is a veterinarian there to help the animals and keep them safe and healthy. It also talks about all of the different exhibits and areas of the zoo. I would definitely read this to my class the day before we took a field trip to the zoo. Then, during the trip I would refer back to the book when we were in certain exhibits and learning different things. This would be a great book for later elementary school grades.

Zoo is an informational book that offers children a simplified, yet in depth look at what goes on at the zoo behind the scenes. There is lots of information for students to look at. This book does not have characters, setting, or a plot.
